    Motley Fool BUY NYB

    If you want dividend growth, you may want to look elsewhere -- New York Community Bancorp hasn't raised its dividend since 2005. However, with investors nervous about the economy and banks in particular, Mr. Market has knocked NYCB's stock down to a level where its $1 dividend gives you a serious 8.4% yield.

    There are risks for NYCB. For instance, banks have to set aside money based on how much of their loans they believe will end up turning sour. The amount that NYCB has set aside is a fairly small percentage of its currently-nonperforming loans, so if management turns out to be wrong in its estimates, that could put a drag on earnings.

    But the bulk of NYCB's loans are not on over-levered single-family homes in Las Vegas that were given to minimum-wage earners. Instead, much of NYCB's loan book consists of conservative loans on low-rent apartment buildings in New York City whose value is based on the actual cash flows that the buildings generate.

    Some investors may see "bank" as a four-letter word, but if you're looking for big dividends, NYCB may be your ticket.
